The incident happened on the “F Train”, at the Delancey Street station just after 1:30PM.

The man avoided the wheels of the train because he landed in the space between the tracks. A transit spokesperson said the train operator saw the man fall and put on the emergency brakes but three cars still passed over the man.

The man then crawled onto the platform after the train had stopped. The man was taken to Bellevue Hospital, where he is listed in fair condition.

  1. Is there enough space between the side of the stopped train and the platform to crawl through? Perhaps he was near enough to the space between train cars?

    I hope he had positive confirmation that the train wasn’t about to start up again before he started to crawl out!

  2. The “F” train is such a heilige, heimishe line, daily ferrying acheinu bnei yisroel to & from the City for work, shopping, etc. There is probably more Torah & Tehilim learned /recited on that line than on any other. No question that it is that z’chus that brought about this great miracle.
    “Chasdei hashem ki lo somnu, ki lo cholu rachamov”!

  3. Dear #6- DaasTorahWtchdg-

    You said it well! The heimishe people that use the NYC subway always manage to make a Kiddush Hashem. Watching the low class goyim in contrast makes me be happy to be a yid.

    Another comment about the subways: If you were ever on the trains on Chol Hamoed, I’m sure you noticed all the families shlepping with their kids, carriages, toddlers, and load of bags. We have to be extra careful with them and explain the dangers of the trains.
